Poll shows Pennsylvania voters disfavor consumer-funded nuclear bailout

According to a poll released Wednesday by American Petroleum Institute-PA, Pennsylvania voters overwhelmingly disapprove of the concept of a consumer-funded nuclear bailout.

While there currently is no specific legislation introduced to create such a bailout, API spokesperson Michael Tadeo said the organization wanted to get out ahead of the issue.

 

“We wanted to inform members of the statehouse as they return in September that voters in the state are against this,” he said.
